Cheese, heavy cream and butter are really not on Sonoma's approved list of foods.

This recipe is not good for Morning Anorexia Diet. It is much too heavy in fats.

Great for Atkins.
I made this the other night and added chicken and jalapeno. It was awesome!

it's not helpful to have other dieters making negative comments when the recipe is OBVIOUSLY for Atkins.

I just made this soup this afternoon. It is awesome and full of great flavors. I have been getting caught up on bland food. This is just what I needed. I added 1/4 of cooked bacon for flavor and taste. Sooooo good! Thanks for the recipe!

I made this yesterday - a rainy, cold, crummy day! It was warm, satisfying and wonderful, not to mention perfect for the induction phase of Atkins. Thank you!!!
